Visiting a gun show the day after Sandy Hook

Jim Goad:

It’s also mildly amusing/disturbing how closely all the nerdy, medicated, spree-killing geeks resemble the progressive pundits who are caterwauling for unilateral disarmament of the citizenry.

They look nothing like the fat and hairy—yet unmistakably male—Georgia hilljacks who milled around the gun show in Gainesville.

And although I’m supposed to fear those “angry white males,” I felt far less hostility emanating from the convention floor than I do whenever I’m around leftist girly-boys.

I can’t agree with Goad’s hostility towards psychiatric drugs, however, the point above is awesome.

There’s an Obama-style “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon” joke in there somewhere for the taking.

Certainly Lee Harvey Oswald and Sirhan Sirhan looked nothing like the burly rightwing militia gun-nuts of liberal fantasy. Neither did the Columbine kids or “Marc Lepine.”
